Urgent care for frail older people is a pressing issue: in England, people aged 75 and over accounted for one fifth of hospital admissions in 2014/15, and accounted for around 40% of all days spent in hospital. 

We have been studying acute and emergency care for older people for over ten years, and have undertaken a number of large-scale research and quality improvement projects. We have also worked closely with policy-makers, educationalists and - most importantly - patients and the public, to try and design services which improve outcomes for patients.
